Each of Gentle Ben's Den three stories has a deck overlooking the surrounding woodlands. Of course, they have Adirondack chairs and rockers-a Smoky Mountain must!-so that everyone can kick back and admire the kaleidoscopic foliage in autumn and the lush greenery in spring and summer. In addition to the deck, which spans the width of the cabin, the main level has a screened-in porch. Here's where you'll find the hot tub, a favorite place to unwind after a day spent hiking or biking in the mountains.
You can access both the screened-in porch and the deck from the main floor's great room. Many of the wood furnishings were crafted by local artisans specifically for Gentle Ben's Den, adding to the sense that this is indeed a very special cabin. The living area's sofas are ideal for gathering with the others to watch a movie on the 50-inch HDTV-there's premium cable as well as a Blu-ray player-or sip aprďż˝s-ski beverages in the golden glow of the fireplace.
The dining area can seat up to 10 people: eight at the handsome wood table and two more at the breakfast bar. The deck has a bistro table as well, where you can enjoy an alfresco lunch or linger over drinks with friends beneath the starry night sky. Also on the deck is a gas grill, because when the days are long, the breezes are fresh, and the songbirds are putting on a concert, there's nothing like barbecuing in the open air.
The kitchen of Gentle Ben's Den is fully equipped to cater to all your other culinary needs. Open and spacious, it features a whole gamut of appliances, from refrigerator/freezer to blender, cookware and tableware. And if cooking isn't part of your dream vacation, rest assured that scores of restaurants are just a few minutes away.
The primary suite, like the great room, is on the main floor of Gentle Ben's Den. Like the three other bedrooms, it includes a sumptuous king-size bed and a flat-screen TV. The primary bedroom has a bonus-a private bathroom with a Jetted Tub as well as a shower.
In addition to two bedrooms and a full bathroom, the lower level has one of the lodge's two game rooms. You can shoot pool here by a fireplace, challenge yourself at the multi-game arcade, play cards at the pub-style table or stretch out on the futon and watch TV. The futon, by the way, opens into a bed for two, as does one of the great room's sofas, enabling Gentle Ben's Den to sleep as many as 12 people.
The second game room, on the loft level, includes the air-hockey and foosball tables. The other room up here is another en-suite bedroom. Sleeping up here is a bit like staying in a deluxe treehouse.
Gentle Ben's Den is located in Gatlinburg's Mountain Shadow resort. In summer you can swim in the resort's outdoor pool and lounge on its poolside patio. Year-round, the kids can have a blast in the resort's playground. Just as important, the resort is only a hop, skip and jump from numerous attractions. You can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 10 minutes. Downtown Gatlinburg is equally close. Once there, you can explore Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, the Anakeesta outdoor entertainment complex, shops, arcades, amusement centers and more.
One thing's for certain-when you stay at Gentle Ben's Den, you'll never be bored! Book your reservation today and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime.

I wouldnâ€™t stay again
Rooms were nice, but could hardly cook because of a ant problem around the kitchen. Other than that it was okayWould recommend to others? No
The cabin was wonderful. Lots of amenities and was clean. Rental process was simple. Vacation app had everything we needed to know about our stay. Would recommend for a great vacation.Would recommend to others? Yes
Not enough parking, not enough toilet paper , paper towels , trash bags! For the price these cheap items should be supplied !Would recommend to others? No
On the day of our arrival we were notified that our cabin had flooded. We were told that there were no comparable cabins available for our stay. We were offered a refund and nothing else but condolences. When the refund was received it did not include the full amount paid. We called multiple phone numbers to try and remedy this and received no assistance. We also inquired about any other local rental companies that might have availability and were told they knew of none. Very disappointed - rental was originally booked two months ago for a group of 10 traveling for a dance competition. While I have understand that a utility issue is beyond their control, no effort was made to assist us in a solution. Not even receiving a full refund was just unacceptable.Would recommend to others? No
DON'T RENT THIS CABIN!!!!
Do not rent this cabin. Everything is worn out and needs replaced. The cabin is half the size it looked in pictures. No way could 12 people even fit in this cabin. We had 7 adults and 1 child. It was a struggle. The kitchen would never accomodate a large group. If the dishwasher door was open, only 1 person could fit in the kitchen. There is no cabinet space to put away groceries. Not one knife in the place could cut anything. The pots and pans were ancient. Cheap chintzy silverware. The mattresses were all worn out. Very small bedrooms on the lower level. Couldn't enjoy the pool table because the pool cues were missing a tip and there was no chalk. One billiard ball was broken. The bedroom light in the loft did not work. Supposed to be able to call for a mid-week trash pickup. We called. It never happened. Please don't make the mistake we did by renting this cabin.Would recommend to others? No
